Do you think adults can't learn a new language quickly? Think again! This man learnt conversational French in 17 days! In Time Magazine, CEO David Bailey tells you how he did it with plenty of useful advice that you can also use.
Even if you are not living in an English-speaking country, you can still choose some of these strategies to improve - listen to music (printing out the lyrics also helps), read children's books that you have already read in your own language and prepare and practise answers to questions you think you will have to answer. His questions and answers are pretty basic - where are you from etc - but this is a great tip if you have to use English at work and you know you have to talk about certain topics. Prepare and practise.
My blog has changed! If you're looking for my English-practice exercises, they're all still here, just look in the archives.
